GemFX, are you certain that you're not confusing Wi-Fi for VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol)? That's what allows you to make free local, long distance and international calls via apps such as Skype, Fring and several others.
You can video-chat free using other apps such as GOOGLE Hangouts, formerly Gmail Chat.
You can also use Wi-Fi for free web browsing for news, shopping, entertainment, research, etc. and that will conserve your DATA balance. Use your wireless router at home. In public places (e.g. - parks, libraries, coffee shops, etc.) you can tap into a hotspot. They may require that you enter a password, but generally they're free. Just be aware of your surroundings and your security settings. Even with a firewall, I wouldn't access personal, sensitive information such as bank accounts when using public Wi-Fi.
Unfortunately, you're definitely going to use TALK MINUTES when making regular wireless phone calls.
